What scripture shows that the Roman emperors ruled the world?
"And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world
should be taxed!' Luke 2: 1.
NOTE-Describing the Roman conquests, Gibbon uses the very imagery employed in the vision of
Daniel 2. He says: "The arms of the republic, sometimes vanquished in battle, always victorious in war,
advanced with rapid steps to the Euphrates, the Danube, the Rhine, and the ocean; and the images of gold,
or silver, or brass, that might serve to represent the nations and their kings, were successively broken by
the iron monarchy of Rome."-"Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire," chap. 38, par. 1, under "General
Observations," at the close of the chapter.
